Zita West Children’s Multivitamin, 180g
New research highlights the benefit of giving kids a bit of a nutritional boost. With busy schedules, fussy eaters and processed foods, children often don’t meet all of their recommended daily value of nutrients. In fact, figures from the latest National Diet and Nutrition Survey show that on average, from food sources alone, toddlers are only achieving one quarter of recommended levels of Vitamin D, which has a significant role in the regulation of the immune system.
This new formulation contains 100% or more of the recommended NRV (Nutritional Reference Value) of 13 essential vitamins along with a high level (12.5 billion) of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium based friendly microflora. Along with Vitamin D, which is also needed for the normal development of children’s bones and teeth, it also contains Vitamins B6 and B12 to help with their normal cognitive development and Vitamins C and A plus Zinc and Selenium to help support their immune system. There’s a clever combination of other B vitamins too, including B1 and B2 to help with the release of energy from foods.
Of course, any supplement for children is only as good as their willingness to take it, and parents know that children can be finicky about the taste no matter how nutritious. Which is why our new product is in powder form with a natural strawberry flavour.
